Nothing to show yet.
My son has asked me to make some custom handles for a beer kegerator. He has gotten into making his own custom brews at home. I'm happy to make them. He wants each handle different. Choosing woods is/was first step. He and our DIL took us to Hawaii several years ago and I bought some wood while there. I have a hunk of Koa that is just right for one handle. I cut an Osage Orange tree from his lake house property when it was built and have plenty of that. Ten plus year old OO will be a hard turn but I enjoy it. Those will be "memory" woods. Third will probably be some maple a friend gave me. Slightly figured but will be pretty. On the top he wants unique stuff. One will have family initial 'F' on one side of a flat round piece. On the side facing the user it will be painted with blackboard paint. The other two toppers are yet to be decided but I'll make them uneek.
Problem I'm facing now is the stud they will attach to is a 3/8"X16 UNC thread. The threaded inserts I have found are all fine. I may have to buy tubing and a tap and make my own. Glad he is my son. I would not fuss and bother like this for anyone else without charging big bucks. Also have to decide on a finish since these will be handled a lot. I'm thinking just rattle can poly will be durable enough and not destroy the natural wood beauty.
